Actor Tom Selleck stopped his new Ford Bronco at Woodward's General Store and Crafts Center on a remote highway in Jonesboro, Maine, to buy supplies and make an announcement.

"Hello, I'm your new neighbor," Selleck told Ted Woodward, the 17-year-old son of owner Bill Woodward.Although residents in this eastern Maine community seemed aware that the star of the television series "Magnum P.I." had acquired a large chunk of shorefront property at Mount Misery, other details of Selleck's visit seemed elusive.

If Selleck, whose Hawaii-based TV series is in its last season, is searching for seclusion, Jonesboro is a good choice. The town, settled in 1763 and long known for its granite quarries, has a population of 550.
